Double Chocolate Banana Bread

Cacoa Banana Bread

I miss being in the kitchen! Our summer started of very busy and it still is non stop, this past 4th of July weekend has been one weekend that I was able to do some catching up.  On Sunday with a bit downtime on my hands, I threw myself into the kitchen and started to makes things that made me feel good.  I made a batch of salad’s and then I saw three very ripe banana’s and the first recipe to come to mind was Deb’s Double Chocolate Banana Bread.  Oh did it turn out good!  I hope you enjoy making and eating this chocolaty banana bread as much as we do.  My oldest daughter, loved mashing up the banana’s and sifting all the dry ingredients.

Recipe as follows:

Double Chocolate Banana Bread

Ingredients:

3 medium-to-large very ripe bananas
1/2 cup (115 grams) butter, melted
3/4 cup (145 grams) brown sugar (I use dark here; either light or dark work)
1 large egg
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon table salt
1 cup (125 grams) all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 cup (about 6 ounces or 170 grams) semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chunks or chips

Preparation:

Heat your oven to 350°F. Butter a 9×5-inch loaf pan, or spray it with a nonstick baking spray.

Mash bananas in the bottom of a large bowl. (You’ll have a little over 1 cup mashed banana total.) Whisk in melted butter, then brown sugar, egg, and vanilla. Place baking soda, salt, flour and cocoa powder in a sifter or fine-mesh strainer and sift over wet ingredients. (My cocoa is almost always lumpy, so this is essential for me.) Stir dry and wet ingredients with a spoon until just combined. Stir in chocolate chunks or chips.

Pour into prepared pan and bake 55 to 65 minutes, until a tester or toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out batter-free. (A melted chocolate chip smear is expected, however.) Cool in pan for 10 to 15 minutes, then run a knife around the edge and invert it out onto a cooling rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.

The banana bread will keep for up to 4 days at room temperature. I keep mine wrapped in foil. It goes without saying that it has never actually lasted that long.
